The Manila Metropolitan Cathedral-Basilica, informally known as the Manila Cathedral, is aRoman Catholic basilica located in Manila,Philippines, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary asOur Lady of the Immaculate Conception, the Principal Patroness of the Philippines. The cathedral serves as the seat of the Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Manila, currently Luis Antonio Cardinal Tagle, the de facto Primate of the Philippines.
Located at Plaza de Roma in the Intramuros district of Manila, the cathedral was originally a parish church owned and governed by the diocese ofMexico in 1571, until it became a separate diocese on February 6, 1579 upon the issuance of a Papal bull Illius Fulti Praesido by Pope Gregory XIII.

Whether you're religious or not, cathedrals in any city are worth checking out - they're a feat of human engineering and man power. This particular church was undergoing renovations when we walked by, so we weren't able to go in - but it was very beautiful from the outside. The spanish brought Catholicism to Manila over 400 years ago, and you can tell that it's the country's dominant religion by all the political signs dotted around the cathedral.

This church is like any other church in Manila. And there are a tone of them. This one is popular one of the most popular being located in the middle of Intramuros. It has a bit of hawkers around willing to take your photo or show you around Intramuros. It is best to just say no thank you, ignore them and walk on. If you are a person who likes to see the tourist spots, this is one not to miss.
